Our Little Mess
Our little Molly has been such a little mess lately! She's so smart and spunky. Here are some recent conversations with my girl.
Background: While I was fixing lunch, Molly got the sprinkles out of the pantry and put them on the table. When I saw them, I took them and put them away. About 5 minutes passes.
Molly: Mommy, is it wrong to take something away from someone without asking them?
Me: Yes, that is wrong.
Molly: It's naughty, right?
Me: Yes, that is naughty.
Molly: Mommy, you were naughty when you took those sprinkles away from me without asking, weren't you?
Molly: It's okay, Mommy. But next time you need to ask.
Me: Molly, you need to put away your laundry.
Molly: I can't! My arms are broken!
Me: Oh, that's sad. How are you going to eat your snack?
Molly: My arms work to eat snack. They are just broken to put away laundry.
Me: Molly, where did you put Mommy's keys?
Molly: They are upstairs on my bed.
Me: Can you go get them for me?
Molly: No, you can do it.
Me: But you're the one that took them upstairs.
Molly: But you can get them. Come on, Mommy! It will be fun! Just pretend you are Superman and fly right up the stairs to get them!
Molly: Who put these tongs in the dishwasher? They were not dirty.
Me: Well, you were playing with them and left them out so I bet Daddy thought they were dirty and put them in the dishwasher.
Molly: Mommy! Boys are not supposed to load the dishwasher. They don't know if things are dirty or not. Next time, you need to let a girl do it, okay Mommy?
